Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Scariest Spaces (or Jams) just in time for Halloween

Archivists,

I have a friend who has asked me to inquire of the 'scariest' spaces in order to make some noise for halloween.

Interesting question, looking for some interesting replies.

Much to choose from. I have heard some pretty scary DS's like Sept 72 Philly.

To me the scariest of all is the "What's Become Of The Baby?" space from 4/26/69.

Folks here with better memories than mine can tell you the date of the Dead show when shortly after his son's fatal accident Ken Kesey reads e e cummings 'Buffalo Bill's defunct' during a 'Space' out of Dark Star. That's pretty intense.

Okay. Try Baltimore '82's Raven Space---also known as the nitrous space. It's not scary but it IS Hallowe'eny (Edgar Alan Poe 'n all) and that Phil would do this is a tad frightening.

The Drums and Space in March '94's Omni show that features the last Dark Star ever played is pretty good and spooky. I think I played it last year while shelling out ffor kids. I also like to throw on Infrared Roses programming the creepier stuff (ie: most of it).

What's that Hallowe'en show where they open with Werewolves from the early 80's---that's pretty funny. Don't know how scary it is though.

You know. I got kind of freaked out during The Dead's Buffalo, NY Space this year.

Plenty to mine in some '72, '73 "Tiger jams" too.

Agree. The jam that follows Kesey during his speech is extremely haunting. While it happens during Dark Star, that section is definitely not a Dark Star jam. It's completely freaky and under the less than festive circumstances down right chilling.

Put together a compilation of D.J. Godchaux singlehandedly preventing Playing in the Band from becoming the Grateful Dead's finest ever jamming vehicle with her banshee ruination of some of the finest musicianship ever heard in this or any other world. The fact that she got away with that for nearly a decade is very scary.

Playin' in the Band typically was played for anywhere between 10 to 45 minutes during the time that Donna was with the band. The first sung part lasts about 3-4 minutes (?) the second, maybe 2 minutes at most (?). Donna wails for a max of 30 seconds right before the 2nd set of vocals. That leaves anywhere from 4 to 38 minutes for the rest of the band to make Playin' a flight of fancy telepathic mind meld freakout jam (some might even argue, their finest vehicle).

I'm sure some nights D.J. Godchaux was SCARY enough to make people shite in their pantaloons. Perhaps she was capable of completely wiping away the elevated state of awareness and sensitivity brought about by the boys ringing the bells of heaven? Personally, that 30 seconds of hellacious shrieking is sometimes enjoyable, sometimes makes me jump, reach for the volume, or just laugh, but there's no way that it could ever possibly outshine or make me forget what just happened during that jam!

If you listen to AUDs from the Godchaux years, you would hear people cheering like mad right as Donna's screaming her head off. Perhaps it wasn't so unpleasant, and actually somewhat grounding, to hear a blood-curtling scream after hurling through abstract space for the last 20 minutes?

Whoa, that was a seriously stoned rant on my part. For a few months, I have been trying to formulate my points against Donna bashers and your post stimulated a break-through.

30 seconds of Donna screaming can't overshadow the many minutes of beautiful jams experienced just before.

But yes, just imagine a compilation of 30 second clips of Donna and her various Yeeeoooooowwwh!'s from over the years. Frightening!

Yet somehow this reminds me of the Budweiser commercials that cut from guy to guy (or grandma to grandma) as they are all screaming "WAAADDDAAAAP".

Heh. I was just thinking last week that I'd like to see a 2 or 4 CD collection of the brightest and darkest Dead.

I'm checkin' out the '89 Miami show now. Thanks!

I never thought that DS was scary. Regardless you could go with the Raven Space from Baltimore in April '82 or the DS from Miami around Halloween '89 (10/26).

The Dark Star from 12/18/73 has a particularly terrifying Space segment...

One time we were grokking that show and just as the feedback section of Dark Star came on, my wife walked in the room. She was less than impressed and couldn't believe that grown men were sitting at computers around the country listening to that noise.
